Re: Endesa air conditioning

This is not helpful. We have had a place in Spain for six years and so far we have not had any problems with Endesa's service. Well after eleven years paying them by direct debit they cancelled the mandate and returned to manual cash payment. Pain in the ass . . . . . I have just managed to set up ...

Re: Finding a will . . . . . . . .

Our community Abogado has said we need my mothers passport. We dont have one as she died at age 98 and it had expired years earlier and was destroyed. Also needed is her death cert (translated into Spanish) from Ireland. So lets see how this goes . . . . . .

Re: Topless in Marbella and Puerto Banus

I reckon this is aimed at the Hen/Stag groups. These groups have cased problems in Dublin so I can understand the Marbella Town Hall's new rules.

Finding a will . . . . . . . .

If someone has made a will in Spain with a solicitor......... Can it be traced ? Is there a central register ? I need to see if my relative left a Spanish will. Thanks.

Re: Where would you advertise house sale.

Get a pay as you go phone and use that number to take calls. As said above at least anyone calling it will have seen it's location. DOn't be afraid of selling without an agent, you don't need one. Put up the Se Vende sign.

Re: Keeping a pet. EU Directive ? ?

In our community in Spain the house rules say no dogs. But we have relaxed this as long as the dogs are kept on a lead and dont bark all the time (cause annoyance) and don't do their business on the grass . I had heard the EU were passing a directive that would make it a human right to have a pet.
